The issue I see is it’s total storage is lacking. 12 pack of 12oz cans doesn’t hold half of what my 15 year old dying mini fridge holds.No, marketing really really works. It's why EA spends more money marketing Call Of Duty than they spend on it's development.
It’s sleek for a mini fridge. The glass fronted ones are expensive unless you snag one on CL.ROFL count me in the same boat. Hahaa. I have been looking for a mini fridge for basement and never really got myself to get it and now I am like shit can go legit next to my TV without any issues haha.
Coming soon to a dorm near you.
Is this a traditional compressor based fridge? This holds like 50 beers of all sizes lolI wouldn't want one, it's a shitty peltier based unit. Grossly inefficient and uses a ton more energy than a traditional compressor based refrigerator.

It doesn’t look nearly as cool for my playroom though.
Thank you for teaching me something today. Seriously.Most definitely a compressor based unit. If that thing used peltiers, you'd be crying when you saw your energy bill. You should be able to see the compressor pumpkin tucked in the back of the unit, and the condenser coils are usually integrated into the exterior walls, which will make the exterior walls warm/hot to the touch. The other giveaway is a compressor will vibrate or hum when running and you can sometimes hear the refrigerant and oil gurgling around in the pipes
Peltiers require a ton of energy to move heat from one side of the module to the other, and since the surface area is so small, they have to run a long time with forced air to cool the box down. Some peltier based refrigerators actually never turn the peltier module off, and will run it at reduced voltage, continuously drawing power. Refrigerant compressor based fridges are orders of magnitude more efficient because they're cyclic in nature. The compressor only runs when the box needs to have the temperature regulated, which is fairly infrequent if the box has good insulation and a good seal on the door.
About the only thing I'd recommend a peltier box for is if you needed hot drinks, because a you can apply reverse current and heat the box.
